Mets, former All-Star Inciarte agree on Minors deal (source)

June 20th, 2022

Former All-Star outfielder has agreed to a Minor League deal with the Mets, a source told's Mark Feinsand on Monday.

The team hasn't confirmed the deal, which will earn Inciarte $1.1 million if he reaches the Majors, per Feinsand.

Inciarte was a three-time Gold Glove Award winner in center field and an All-Star in 2017 for the division-rival Braves. The 31-year-old played in 52 games for Atlanta last season, batting .215 with two home runs and 10 RBIs in 89 plate appearances.

Inciarte hasn't played in the big leagues this season, with the Yankees signing him to a Minor League deal in December and releasing him last Wednesday.

Inciarte's best season came in 2017, when he batted .304 with 11 home runs and 22 stolen bases while winning his second Gold Glove Award.

Having spent six years with Atlanta, Inciarte has contributed plenty to the Mets-Braves rivalry -- including memorably robbing Yoenis Céspedes of a potential walk-off home run to end the game at Citi Field on Sept. 21, 2016.
